About Desert Tour
Payment Methods

Most of our customers ask us over and over this question about the difference between a tour of 2, 3, 4 days, so we got you a clear explanation in order to let you know it, please refer to the figure below.


Morocco Sahara tour departs from Marrakech or fez, stay overnight on the half route in the desert (1 night or 2 nights) and end wherever you want Fez or Marrakesh. Furthermore, the total distance from Marrakech back to Marrakech is 1124 kilometers and from Marrakech to Fez is 1033 kilometers.

  • 2 Day desert tour: Spend overnight in the Sahara, however you might not be able to see the sunset, starry sky and sunrise due to 14 hours’ drive and the weather.
  • 3 Day desert tour: (depending on the starting point “fez or Marrakech”) The first night will be spent in the dades gorge (half way) and Next night is in the desert. Even Though, you might not be able to see the erg chebbi sand dunes till 5 pm. So, for a 3 days desert tour, there is only one night in the Sahara for about 14 hours, arranged to stay in a desert camp, If the weather is good, you can see the sunset, starry sky and an amazing sunrise as well.


  1. Few stops, fewer opportunities to take photos, not enough time to enjoy the sunset as the arrival will be late in the evening, can watch starry sky, and sunrise (depending on weather conditions) but departure will be earlier.

Memorable 4 days Morocco desert tour itinerary from Fes to Marrakech

We were fortunate enough to have Moha as our private driver as we embarked on our trip into the Sahara Desert. he was very friendly and gave us information about each stop en route. also was very attentive to our needs of what time we wanted to eat and stay at each location. In addition to that, the country is a treasure trove of experiences – steeped in history, culture, contradictions, spectacular geography and sensational food. upgrading to the luxury camp in the desert was well worth it. thanks Moha for making this a memorable 4 days Fes to Marrakech desert tour and for ensuring we felt safe at all times. we fervently hope to go back and, if we do, it will be with MTT.

Remarkable 4 Day Fes to Marrakech Desert Tour

We took Morocco Tabiarte Tours’s four days/ three nights private tour from Fes to Marrakech. they tailored the tour to our requests and interests. Furthermore, we spent two nights in Merzouga, did a camel ride and one night at the Hotel in the dades Gorge.

Our guide/driver, Moha, was the best. also He was always in a good mood and very accommodating to our requests and needs. His entertaining stories and discussions about Morocco culture and religion made the long drives informative and interesting. His efforts and sense of humor really made it an amazing adventure. We traveled in a comfortable Toyota Land Cruiser, which Moha carefully and safely drove. highly recommend Moha.

On the other hand, we spent much of one day exploring along the desert dunes with Moha. drove through several small villages along the sand dunes and visited the Gnaoua house and listened to their music. We also had the opportunity to visit nomad people and had a cup of tea with them. a very enjoyable day and highly recommended.

The MTT team always quickly responded to all our emails while we were planning the tour. all aspects of the tour were very professional.

An enjoyable Morocco itinerary 4 days from Fes to Marrakech

We had a private tour, which was fabulous in every way. The attractions were incredible, each spot had its own unique look. The van was quite comfortable and spacious. On the other hand, the hotels and the camp they booked for us were amazing. Mostly, the best guide (Moha) made this journey so special. He quickly understood our focus on photography, our physical capabilities, and also interests. This person had an unbelievable wealth of knowledge according to all the spots. Not only were we fortunate to have this guide, but we made a new friend. We highly recommend Morocco Tabiarte Tours and would gladly use them again. Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
